Short description: The article is a response to a comment on a previous paper by the authors (plus one other). References to the previous articles are provided. 
Long description: The original article disussed the nature and scale of the transport mechanism of organic compounds from saltwater to freshwater aquifers and the implications this had for the contamination of coastal aquifers. As a result the emphasis was not on some of the more technical aspects of the transport mechanism. The comment the conclusions of the original article with additional information and discussion not included previously due to lack of space.
